Vegetarian recipes and info


Category - Eastern European Recipes

There’s some debate about which countries make up Eastern Europe, but for me (or at least my cooking), it includes Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Ukraine (subject to change as I discover new recipes).

Applesauce

Sure you could just buy it at the store, but homemade applesauce is one of the all-time great treats.

Borscht

Beet borscht is a traditional cold vegetarian soup common in Russian, Ukrainian, and Jewish cooking.

Cabbage Rolls

Cabbage rollsNormally filled with a mixture of ground beef and rice, cabbage rolls are a staple in Eastern Europe and a favorite in many other countries. Try these vegetarian cabbage rolls stuffed with rice and vegetables for an equally tasty main course.

Chocolate Babka

Vegan, cholesterol-free, and thoroughly delicious, this chocolate babka won a blue ribbon at the 2001 Monmouth County Fair.

Imam Bayildi

Imam bayildiDon’t let this Turkish stuffed eggplant’s prep time scare you – less than 20 minutes is hands on, and since it tastes best at room temperature, you can make it a day in advance. This recipe uses quite a bit less oil than traditional imam bayildi, but it’s just as delicious.

Mock Beef Stroganoff

Vegetarian stroganoffI just love this recipe: pasta smothered in a creamy sauce with mushrooms and chunks of mock meat.

Mushroom Strudel

Working with filo dough is not as difficult as you might think, and this elegant mushroom dish is well worth the effort.

Noodle Kugel

Kugel is a traditional Jewish side dish that is usually slightly sweet but is often served as a side dish, rather than a dessert.

Polenta

Polenta is a thick cornmeal mush served as a side dish to stew, or topped with vegetables, sauce, and/or cheese.

Poppyseed Cookies

Delicious, not-too-sweet cookies filled with poppyseeds.
